TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1 – An astrology update from Risa D’Angeles column in the Santa Cruz Good Times publication…

MARS RETROGRADE IN VIRGO

Everyone has heard (and talks) about Mercury retrograde. Lesser known are Mars & Venus retrogrades, joining Mercury retrograde this year. Mars retrograded Jan. 23, a long three-month Mars retrograde. Mars, retrograding only every two years (51-84 days), is very significant for humanity. Mars provides us with the energy, assertion, desires and the will to exist, to be and to act. Mars rules our ability to proceed into the world. Mars, god of war and warriors, gives us strength and directs us outward into experiences that build our personality to become a strong vehicle for the Soul. Mars works with Aries (taking risks to bring forth all things new), with Scorpio (provides the Nine Tests of the Personality) and with Sagittarius (the devic angelic beings that give our bodies life – life force). Mars in Virgo means that our thinking (Virgo works with Mercury) will be internalized; there will be a quickening within us (new life). We will consider appropriate actions to take when the retrograde is over (April 13). With Mars retrograde in Virgo we ponder upon beliefs and opinions, health, nutrition, medicine and how to better serve. Animals are ruled by Virgo. We notice the animal kingdom becomes irritated, often ill and that many in the animal kingdom die when Virgo is involved. Hospitals and military staff, social workers, labor unions all may experience unrest. We remember that humanity works within Ray 4, a new harmony resulting from conflict and chaos. This will be very apparent during Mars retrograde. The U.S. chart has Mars retrograde joining Neptune. Our country can be inspired to tend to things at home. Mars can also be war. During Mars retro we must be cautious. And listen for the still small voices directing us from within. Nothing, with Mars retro, is “normal.” Read more at nightlightnews.com.

New moon update, Rikka replay, free healing call, snorkeling without getting wet, and compassionate rats. What?!


TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1 – An update on the new moon in Aquarius from Astrograph.com

January 22nd New Moon

This New Moon, coming up late on Sunday evening, January 22nd on the American West Coast, or early Monday morning – like all the New Moons lately – triggers both Jupiter and Uranus on the one hand, and theChironNeptune combination on the other, making it yet another in a long sequence of potent New Moon configurations. Since this New Moon is in Uranus’ own sign of Aquarius, and closely squares Jupiter, the presence of these two planetary archetypes is very pronounced and even startling in their immediacy. Jupiter is a particularly appropriate archetype for combining with Uranus since its exuberance matches that of the trickster planet. Jupiter amps up whatever he touches and Uranus does not need much encouragement to get way out there. Surprising events await us and unexpected epiphanies that will come to us as a result of keeping our eyes wide open.

The Sabian symbol of this New Moon supports this idea. It is “A deserter from the navy” and Marc Edmond Jones has this to say: “the disregard of all consequences for the sake of immediate liberation of the spirit. … Except as a man creates his own allegiances, his destiny has no depth.” This is a message that we all need to take to heart right now since this is in fact 2012 and the time for action is at hand. As Bob Dylan remarked in song during the sixties, the seed period for this turbulent decade of our own:

Come senators, congressmen please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt will be he who has stalled
There’s a battle outside and it’s ragin’.
It’ll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin’.

In order for our destiny to have depth, as Marc Edmond Jones puts it, we must stand and be counted, and be counted upon as we ride the rapids of the cultural changes that are upon us, or else be discounted in the world process that we are in any case all part of.

Another factor aspected by this New Moon is Chiron, in conjunction with Neptune and aspected as well by a stationing Mars. With Mars turning to retrograde motion we are driven to look inside ourselves for answers and to meditate on our true motivation. Similarly Chiron, the Wounded Healer, contains within its symbolism the theme of tuning to the inner voice, understanding and forgiving ourselves at the deepest possible level for our reactions to the ancient wrongs that were done to us in the name of socialization and of parenting, in spite of our actual needs. We do well when we can proceed with the resolution to no longer allow ourselves to be beholden to a dead and increasingly irrelevant past; and to heed rather the beat of the distant yet distinct drummer that no longer moves in lock-step with consensus thinking. This is the voice inside us that stands for truth and for moving on with our lives in peace and wholeness, in spite of everything.

# 2 – An interesting and insightful article about…..rats!

# 3 – Great insights about the upcoming new moon and other astrological goings on from Simone Butler…

AQUARIUS NEW MOON: Let the Dragon Roar!

Since Mars entered Virgo on November 11, my 83-year-old neighbor Lucille has been making demands. She claimed that runoff from my rain gutters was compromising her retaining wall. So I removed the dirt and plants closest to her wall and put in a costly drainage system. After several encounters in which she insisted more be done, we resolved the situation. Or so I thought.

Last week, I came home to find a stranger in my yard, ripping out my plants. I installed a fence. Claiming the fence was on her property, Lucille demanded I take it down.

I tried to transcend my anger. I blessed my neighbor and affirmed divine justice.  Yet nothing made me feel better, or prompted her to back off. However, once I gave in to my fury, letting it surge through me as I shouted and danced, things started to shift. (For inspiration on owning your anger, watch this short video). Now, I’m ready to take the next step: assessing the property line to determine my legal rights.

Welcome to Mars turning retrograde in nitpicky Virgo! The warrior planet will be retracing its steps from Jan. 23 to April 13, and continues to energize this earthy sign until July 3. Altogether, it will spend almost eight months in Virgo, helping us channel our anger and frustration, get organized, heal ancient wounds, and find constructive ways to right personal, corporate and planetary wrongs.

Hot tip: Clutter-busting your home, office and car will help keep your vital energies flowing, especially in the “stuckest” times when Mars is stationary (Jan. 11 to Feb. 6, and March 31 to April 29).

The Aquarius New Moon (Jan. 22, 11:39 p.m. PST) occurs just hours before Mars’ retreat into the underworld. The Aquarian need for freedom and innovation is intensified by squares from Jupiter and Saturn and a sextile from Uranus. But we may feel as if we have one foot on the gas and another on the brake, due to the immobility of Mars and Saturn’s cautious square. Resist the urge to leap into the fray. Taking slow, meditative steps toward freedom and progress and eliminating outworn projects, ideas, relationships and other energy drains will work better than rash actions.

Lending even more fuel to the evolutionary fire, Jan. 23 also ushers in theChinese Year of the Water Dragon. According to Terah Kathryn Collins, director of the Western School of Feng Shui, the Water Dragon’s message is: “Everything is always changing.” This intuitive creature, she explains, “is known for bringing Heaven to Earth and making dreams come true. Visions you’ve been holding deep within your heart could manifest right before your eyes.” Watch what you wish for though, she cautions, “’cause you’re going to get it.”

Combining the Water Dragon’s powers of manifestation with the Aquarius New Moon’s visionary gifts and Mars’ strength and determination can help you break through barriers—if you’re willing to be patient. To get the angels on your team, try this Astro Feng Shui ritual for the Aquarius New Moon and Helpful People gua.

Astrology update, dulse and radiation, Abraham and Guy Finley


TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1 – The latest astrological update from Astrograph.com

January 16th Last Quarter Moon

This Last Quarter Moon, taking place in the early morning hours of Monday, January 16th, ushers in a week-long period of reflection when we are profitably engaged in mulling over the events that have transpired during the previous three weeks of the SunMoon cycle. There is likely to be plenty of food for thought for each one of us, as indicated by the powerful symbolism of the starry messengers that we rely upon for cosmic guidance as we attempt to navigate these intense times. As we slow down to take stock during this last phase of the Capricornlunation, we are also brought into thoughtful re-alignment by the SaturnNeptune trine that is still quite active as Neptune begins to slip toward its entrance into its own sign of Pisces over the next few weeks. The dour restriction of Saturn is coming from a more realistic place than numinous Neptune, and tends to bring his fanciful flights down to earth, but this is not necessarily always so. The imaginative and cosmically sensitive outer planet energy of Neptune can equally hold sway and tend to confuse the practicality of the situation so that it is difficult to tell at any particular moment which end, so to speak, is really and truly up.

Saturn is strongly configured at this juncture, since it is conjuncted by the Moon and squared by the Sun just as it slows down, preparing to retrograde early next month, and comes within 2 degrees of an opposition to Jupiteras it does so. This is another powerful planetary amalgam, even though this last pass opposition to Jupiter never completes; in the weeks to come, Saturn retrogrades in the final degree of Libra and Jupiter moves on in Taurus. Over this period there could be reminders of the last time these two planetary archetypes were opposed, in late March of 2011, so that echoes of issues that were brought up at that time might return to haunt us in these next few weeks as Saturn makes its transition.

We are tuning to the inner in more ways than one, since Chiron in early Pisces is conjunct Neptune, and is also activated by Venus and by Mars during this interesting time period. Relationships are on our minds, and as well the personal blueprints of connection that we bring to the table of each potential interaction, scripts that are anchored in the past but not set in stone there, because we have the ability, by looking more closely into these ancient patterns, to recognize the places inside where we are stuck, and to move beyond them.

All these planetary combinations speak to the polarity of inner versus outer, and we win when we acknowledge the power of both of these modes of living and of soulful inquiry. There is neither one nor the other that is more important or more relevant for our day-to-day activities and decision making. When we accede to our deepest promptings we emulate wholeness and our outer lives proceed in greater alignment with what Spirit is asking of us. And when we take the time to examine more fully our internal motivations and past actions, we proceed with greater confidence and with renewed vigor into the unfolding joy of each present moment.

# 2 – An insightful and inspiring article from Guy Finley. I especially like this part…

“Real power, real fearlessness, is knowing that there’s only one reason life changes as it does: it is to reveal the secret Goodness underlying those same changes. Can we see how the realization of such a truth would have to spell the end of fear?”

http://www.guyfinley.org/free-content/writings/special-lessons/4638?src=KL&lyid=140724185&klsid=sid0000_KL

For a free Starter Kit from Guy and his Life of Learning Foundation, go here.

# 3 – This great quote from Abraham seems to tie in nicely with the message in the Guy Finley article…

“A belief that the behavior of others must be controlled—so that your observation of that good behavior will make you feel good—leaves you feeling vulnerable to their behavior.

We would like to help you to understand that neither the good feeling you find when you observe wanted behavior, nor the bad feeling you find when you observe unwanted behavior, is actually the reason that you feel good or bad. The way you feel is only ever about your alignment, or misalignment, with the Source within you. It is only your relationship with the Source within you (with your own Inner Being) that is the reason for the emotions that you feel.

While it is nice to find things in your physical environment that enhance your good-feeling alignment with yourInner Being, your understanding of why you feel good will make it possible for you to feel good regardless of the behavior of others.

Understanding that the way you feel is really about your Vibrational relationship with your Inner Beingwith the Source within you, with the expanded version of you who resides inside your Vortex—gives you complete empowerment and absolute freedom.— Abraham

# 4 – Here’s two interesting articles on related health topics...

http://www.naturalnews.com/034668_radiation_poisoning_homeopathic_remedies.html

If you are interested in getting the benefits and protection of dulse, you should check out Emerald Sea, with it’s blend of 7 certified organic whole-food sea vegetables (including dulse) that provide your body with virtually every nutrient necessary for optimal health. I take it (and their whey product) myself and also like that the company incorporates spiritual principles into its business practices and makes a point of giving back to the community, so I’m glad to support them.

Winter Feast for the Soul & quick astrology update


PICK OF THE DAY:

I just found out about this and immediately signed up. Such a great idea that I am adding this short second post for today in hopes that others can start along with me. The Winter Feast for the Soul begins today, January 15th, but if you get a late start, just go beyond the scheduled end. I’m sure the idea is to get us so much in the habit of spending the 40 minutes daily that we continue on with it and make it a regular part of our daily living…

http://winterfeastforthesoul.com/

TIP FOR TODAY:

Here’s a quick astrology update for the coming week from renowned astrologer Chris Flisher…

Week of January 16

 Uranus moves forward in Aries and a time for innovation and rebellion arrive. Rebellion serves as the catalyst for change. The spark must come from somewhere and Uranus is willing and able to comply. As the electricity mounts we’ll see more sparks as time unfolds. The push and pull of Saturn and Jupiter will exacerbate the feeling of suppressed energy. Like a horse waiting to run, the delicate balance of wanting to dash while held in place could leave us longing for action and adventure. Mars and the Moon spend a rather grounded time together in late week.

Enjoy, “Zippy”

“The things that we would be asking ourselves is, “What proportion of my day am I in vibrational harmony with my desires, which means, how much of my day am I happy, glad, eager, fulfilled, satisfied, complimentary? And what percentage of my day am I ornery, irritated, frustrated, or blaming?” And you don’t have to do 100%, you don’t have to do 90%, you don’t have to do 80%. If you could even get around 55% feeling better, than not feeling so good — you’d have significant movement in what begins to happen in your experience.” — Abraham
